TLS BOOKS OF THE YEAR 2016 'Gray must be one of the best read of contemporary philosophers, trawling insouciantly through high-, middle- and low-brow literature with the sharp-eyed eclecticism of a magpie of genius' John Banville, Guardian 'Like Isaiah Berlin with a thing for sci-fi' Tibor Fischer, Spectator Everyone thinks they want to be free - or do they? John Gray's thought-stirring new book on freedom draws together insights from Gnosticism, science fiction, ancient sacrifice and the occult to show that freedom is an illusion and that, like fairground puppets, humans dream of escaping the burden of choice altogether.

In this fascinating and colorful book, researcher and performer John McCormick focuses on the marionette world of Victorian Britain between its heyday after 1860 and its waning years from 1895 to 1914. Situating the rich and diverse puppet theatre in the context of entertainment culture, he explores both the aesthetics of these dancing dolls and their sociocultural significance in their life and time. The history of marionette performances is interwoven with live-actor performances and with the entire gamut of annual fairs, portable and permanent theatres, music halls, magic lantern shows, waxworks, panoramas, and sideshows. McCormick has drawn upon advertisements in the Era, an entertainment paper, between the 1860s and World War I, and articles in the World’s Fair, a paper for showpeople, in the first fifty years of the twentieth century, as well as interviews with descendants of the marionette showpeople and close examinations of many of the surviving puppets. McCormick begins his study with an exploration of the Victorian marionette theatre in the context of other theatrical events of the day, with proprietors and puppeteers, and with the venues where they performed. He further examines the marionette’s position as an actor not quite human but imitating humans closely enough to be considered empathetic; the ways that physical attributes were created with wood, paint, and cloth; and the dramas and melodramas that the dolls performed. A discussion of the trick figures and specialized acts that each company possessed, as well as an exploration of the theatre’s staging, lighting, and costuming, follows in later chapters. McCormick concludes with a description of the last days of marionette theatre in the wake of changing audience expectations and the increasing popularity of moving pictures. This highly enjoyable and readable study, often illuminated by intriguing anecdotes such as that of the Armenian photographer who fell in love with and abducted the Holden company’s Cinderella marionette in 1881, will appeal to everyone fascinated by the magic of nineteenth-century theatre, many of whom will discover how much the marionette could contribute to that magic.

An 1870s English horror/mystery tale of moderate chill-which would have been more penetrating with a bit less chatter and a bit more rattling of the creepy marionettes, central focus of four murders. Our heroine is young Regina Curtis, who drops in on Louis Boussard, an uncle she's never met, and Louis' wife Marionette, so named by her great, late puppet-master father. Marionette is bedridden, seems a bit cracked, and is rumored by the servants to possess strange powers. And Regina also finds the servants a mine of information and gossip concerning the nasty cousins-in-residence: lascivious Marcelle Pritchard, who's horribly cruel to her mute daughter Jeanne but adores slimy son Victor, who in turn adores his live-in lover Conrad Von Holtz; and Pritchard p=re, a greedy low-life all wrapped up with his Lambeth mistress. Frightening folk--plus the fearful fascination of Louis' marionette "workshop." And then. . . three murders, climaxing in that of Marcelle, who dangles from a tree beside her similarly suspended look-alike marionette. Also: Regina hears thin nighttime singing, is sexually molested, and what--eek!--is that tiny figure gliding up the stairs? But, with the help of another visitor, handsome Philippe Levisse, she weathers a horrible surprise in the workshop, reads the murderer's diary, and finds love. Competent--you'll hang on to see who's hanging up--but lacking the concentrated terror to lift it above Victorian run-of-the-thrill suspense. (Kirkus Reviews, February 1, 1979).
